The cafe at
the top of the Montparnasse tower is one of the best places to view the Eiffel
Tower when the weather is bad, and to take pictures of the tower at
night, see the photograph below right.
The Eiffel tower is lit up at night, and every hour, on the hour, for a few minutes the lights sparkle.
Even though I live just round the corner, I never tire of the tower sparkling.
For the last few winters there has been an ice rink on the first stage of the tower. And that is what you can see beneath the green laser lights on the left.
